Found: Mexican Coca-Cola
As a home owner, I find myself at Home Depot more than I care to mention but my last few trips have been well worth it because I recently discovered that they sell Mexican Coca-Cola. Now, you might be wondering, "Is there a real difference between Mexican Coke and U.S. Coke?" The answer is a resounding "Yes."
I already knew that Mexican Coke was made from cane sugar as opposed to high-fructose corn syrup in U.S. Coke but I was skeptical about the difference in taste.
As a kid, I remember visiting the Coca Cola Factory in Atlanta, GA and tasting different Cokes from around the world. They all had a distinct taste but I clearly remember preferring U.S. Coke over the rest. I guess they didn't have Mexican Coke at that time because it's much sweeter and has less of a "chemical" taste than U.S. Coke or any other cola for that matter.
Verdict: Pay a little extra for the Mexican Coke. It's so much better, goes down much smoother and gives you a reason to pull out that bottle opener you've been carrying around on your swiss army knife.
